Wise - Part 2

I can't understand the boy who
Doesn't cry, with every right to
His laughing eyes are open gates
Into a heart that hasn't learnt to hate

He's lost everything, everyone is dead
He has no bright future looming up ahead
But he still smiles as wide each day
As if everything was still okay

He tells me he forgets yesterday
So that he can be happy today
And because he wants nothing,
He is rich, he wants for nothing

I smile and put my humble books away
They asked me to teach, I learn instead
From the wisdom of youth that knows
Happiness returns to those who let it go

You can read Part 1 here.
